After a few spotty showers and storms Friday and Saturday provided some relief from the heat, a weather system in Kansas will provide parts of eastern Oklahoma with another chance of rain late Monday into Tuesday. Even with the chance for rain the next 48 hours, temperatures are expected to stay above normal next week. In fact, this is the longest stretch of 90 + degree heat we've experienced this summer.
After beginning the month of August with below normal temperatures, we will close the month with warmer-than-normal conditions, and that trend will carry over into September.
The next 8-14 days the Climate Prediction Center doesn't show any change to our current pattern. Even though temperatures typically begin falling in early September, the summer heat will continue with above normal temperatures sticking around at least for the next two weeks.
If you are ready for fall, it officially begins 9:29 p.m. on September 22.
